How To Make A DIY Pinata Mini
Take an old cardboard box and cut out the template for the shape you want to make. In this case we made a mini pinata donkey. Trace the template and cut out a second. So at this point we had two mini donkeys traced and cut out of our cereal boxes. You could do any shape though for you diy miniature pinatas.
Cut out one long strip of cardboard 1 1/2″ in width, the same length as the circumference of the shape.
Tip: measure with guiding a string around the circumference of the pinata shape.
Then tape it all along the shape of the template.
In the second template, cut a rectangle on the side. Then tape to the other side.
Then fill with candy, or money, or confetti.
Tie a draw string around the piece you just cut out and lightly glue in place.
Take strips of tissue paper fringe, (made by cutting strips of tissue paper then cutting fringe along one side) and glue in strips all around the body covering the body of the pinata.
Add scrunched fringe all along the top to give it a finished look.
Use hot glue gun to attach string.
All done! Now you can hang the pinata!
